Yup, got the email today… just a short time ago, really. I don’t remember entering any sort of contest and I’m not sure why I would have been entered into a drawing for something to do with something in the UK, but they wouldn’t say it if it weren’t true, right? There are laws about this sort of thing, so, I’m feeling pretty confident… my bank account should soon have an additional 1/2 million in it. It is just going to show up there… all I had to do was send over my bank account number and my social security number and I’m told, within the week… I’ll be looking to get some new gear.
With my windfall here’s what I’ll be buying…
Sure, look, I have an extra $500K, but there’s no need to go and get reckless. The Hydros is the same blank as the Helios, meaning it is light and responsive. It is also $300 less than the Helios. See… that’s value right there. The 10 is the hole in my arsenal at the moment… the most glaring one, anyway. I suppose I could use a switch rod for big trout and little steelhead, but no need to get greedy.
I had one of these down in Belize and I liked it… a lot. There are so many (SO MANY) reels out there these days that are kind of awe inspiring. It is a shame one can’t fish more than one at a time. The NV is pretty sweet. I’d like to tangle with something big and burly with that reel.
My friend Shane is just about the fishiest person I know. He’s in the Bahamas right now with his wife and they both caught bonefish today. Shane has taken his Torque 8 all over the world… if he trusts it, I’d like to as well. I am needing a new 8 wt. reel now… and I’ll have all that money to burn.
This I want, because it looks awesome and I love the look of a sleek flats boat. I would sell it soon after buying it when I realize I don’t live in Florida and I know nothing about boats and if I took something out in the back country by myself, I would probably die.
Patagonia all sorts of stuff
They are good people.
Skinny Water Culture – everything they make except redfish stuff
I love their stuff, but I haven’t caught a redfish, or a snook, so I can’t wear that stuff… that feels like lying.
The rest of my money… hmmm… I’ll see what I do with that. I just put all this on my credit card, so I’ll wait for the money to pay it off and then I’ll go forward from there.
That’s just being smart.
